Neenie, if you like New Order you've already got great taste in music in my opinion!

If you like electronic music, you should check out Depeche Mode - their best of compilations or the albums Violator and Songs of Faith and Devotion.

Also New Orders' predecessors Joy Division are worth checking out, although be warned that some of their stuff is fairly dark.

If you like '80s electronic music, check out the Pet Shop Boys, there are a number of good compilations available.

Thank you finaceguy I'll check out Depeche Mode. Joy Division I don't know much of, I think they did that song "love will tear us apart" before they become New Order. Good old 80's

Yeah I think the 80's are under-rated. True, there was a lot of sh*t music produced then but also some good stuff. "Love will tear us apart" is indeed a Joy Division song. After Ian Curtis died tragically in 1980 the surviving members went on to become New Order, but I read somewhere that even if Curtis had lived they would still have gone down the electronic route funnily enough.
